The Board

For the establishment phase of the SWE-RAYS network, a steering committee was appointed  at the first national workshop in August 2012. In december the same year this steering committee officcially formed the association, accepted the bylaws, and was elected as the first board of the association. Now, the board is elected for two years at an annual meeting. Any member can nominate themselves or a colleague.

 

 Mikael Elvborn (Chairman)

Department of Medical Radiation Sciences, Institute of Clinical Sciences, University of Gothenburg.

PhD student in radiobiology, optimization of peptide receptor radionuclide therapy (PRRT), studying effects of fractionation schemes. 

Charlotte Andersson (Vice chairman)

Department of Medical Radiation Sciences, Institute of Clinical Sciences, University of Gothenburg.

PhD student in radiobiology, optimization of peptide receptor radionuclide therapy.

Martin Hjellström (Secretary)

Department of Medical Radiation Sciences, Institute of Clinical Sciences, University of Gothenburg.

PhD student in radiation protection, working with medical gamma cameras from a radiation protection/emergency preparedness point of view.

Milagrosa López Riego (Treasurer)

Department of Molecular Biosciences, The Wenner-Gren Institute (MBW), Stockholm University.

PhD student in the field of radiation biology, focusing on the genetic and epigenetic changes in human cells after exposure to low doses (LD) and low dose rates (LDR) of varying qualities of radiation and the search for a biomarker of radiation exposure. Ultimately, aiming to obtain a better quantification of LDLDR ionizing radiation-induced cancer risk and contribution to radiation protection.

Nadia Boroumand (Webmaster)

Department of Molecular Biosciences, The Wenner-Gren Institute (MBW), Stockholm University.

PhD student in radiation biology, investigating the cancer related changes in lung epithelial cells upon exposure to radon and other stressors such as smoking and nanoparticles. She aim to further the understanding of mechanisms between radiation and chemicals.

Pamela Akuwudike (Board member)

Department of Molecular Biosciences, The Wenner-Gren Institute (MBW), Stockholm University.

PhD student working on determining the risks of developing second malignant neoplasms (SMN).

Antanas Bukartas (Board member)

Department of Medical Radiation Physics, Malmö at Lund University.

PhD in the field of mobile gamma spectrometry and radiation protection. Working on developing a novel Bayesian based orphan source search method for mobile gamma spectrometry systems.
